Lino’s first book, Sinner, was full of stories—honest, humorous, bold, poignant—illustrating why he deserved that title. This new book takes another approach, another angle: why Lino is on his way to sainthood. Often hilarious, but always with a point, Saint focuses on God’s grace in Lino’s life and shows how even a sinner like him can look forward to being a saint. As Lino himself puts it: “Instead of stories of small triumphs and many failures, this is a book to encourage you in your own triumphs. To realize you might not be as big a sinner as you think. And that with God's help, you might just become a saint.” Picking up where Sinner left off, Saint points the way to our end goal—holiness and sainthood—and does so in a way that entertains as well as inspires.
This witty memoir is a collection of fun stories that help all of us imagine ourselves as saints...in spite of our flaws that can get in the way of holiness.

Quote from the reviewer: "Reading the book prompted me to think of my vocation to be a Saint. At every Canonization, we are reminded of that vocation, but many times, within my human frailty, I tend to go on the wrong path sometimes. But reading Saint assured me once again there are people in the shoes as me." Read More
